  1. I had to laugh,”that old metric system”? Haha.
    You guys still use Imperial System! “Archaic”!
    I love their knives and your reviews.

  2. Another great review of a great tool. Thanks. I do have to say though that $200 is a bit steep, at least it is for me. I could buy 10 Scaxe 10’s with that much money and I loves me my Scaxe 10, it has never let me down or anyone that I’ve bought it for since I found out what a jewel it is after watching your review on it. Or I could buy eight of the Scaxe 10/machete combo’s and have eight good hatchets and eight so-so knives, that would be enough to last me the rest of my life and probably still have all of them to leave for my kids. I’m not knocking this hatchet, it’s clearly a high quality tool and if $200 was a drop in the bucket for me I’d buy one right now.
